BEST OF MAXIM
On Monday against the Colorado Avalanche, Sidney Crosby put on a conniving little display equivalent of a nasty crossover dribble in basketball. With Crosby stickhandling with his back to him, Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon was trying to stay between Crosby and the net. Crosby faked going toward his right, but went left instead. MacKinnon left to clean his jock up off the...
Very cool, from NHL.com:
Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jonas Gustavsson, Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby and San Jose Sharks left wing Patrick Marleau have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Oct. 20.

Making his first three appearances of the 2013-14 season, Gustavsson posted...
Thanks to the stellar play of Jonas Gustavsson, the Detroit Red Wings haven't missed a beat without their starting goalie. Now they'll likely have to overcome the loss of another key defensive player to get their revenge on the Phoenix Coyotes.
While Jimmy Howard may return, the visiting Red Wings are expected to be without Niklas Kronwall as they try to extend their winning...
Sidney Crosby left little doubt about who remains the best player from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.
That's fine by Nathan MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche. At the moment, they'll settle for one of the best records in the NHL.
Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 34 shots and the surprising Avalanche edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 on Monday night to improve to 8-1 on...
Nathan MacKinnon has been compared to Sidney Crosby for much of his life. The two grew up in the same Canadian town and both went No. 1 in the NHL draft.
Now they get to take a much closer look at each other.
MacKinnon and the Colorado Avalanche visit Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night in the first NHL matchup of the pride of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.
1. Crosby is a beast. The NHL season is only three weeks old, and already Sidney Crosby is running away with the scoring lead, again. The Kid has 17 points in 8 games, as I’m sure you already know.

It comes as little surprise that the Pittsburgh Penguins sit atop the Eastern Conference with Sidney Crosby holding the early edge in the scoring race.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 34 shots for his second shutout in 11 days and the Colorado Avalanche edged the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 on Monday night.
Gabriel Landeskog scored the game's only goal 5:26 into the second period as Colorado improved to 8-1, the best start in franchise history.
The game was billed as a fight for bragging rights between Pittsburgh star Sidney...
First thing's first; if you had the first overall pick and skipped on Sidney Crosby, you're probably kicking yourself. Crosby has looked as good as ever and leads the league in goals and assists. Patrick Marleau is someone who has been impressive to start this year with at least a point in every game and he has scored a goal in every game but one this year. Marc-Andre...

The Red Wings have finally started to play the way that many Red Wings fans expected them to when the season first began. After a fairly lackluster performance over the first four games of the season, the Red Wings have fired off four straight wins and now are searching for their fifth consecutive.

Colorado Avalanche (7-1-0) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (7-1-0)

Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
There's a part of us/me that has kind of loved the Colorado Avalanche for a while. When the 1996 Florida Panthers eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final, they didn't just bring the scourge...
When the Avalanche played at Boston on Oct. 10 former Colorado defenseman Ray Bourque gave players a suggestion for its slogan this season: "Why not us?"
Avalanche players seem to be buying into that one a little more with each passing and unexpected victory such as Monday night's 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center.
An 8-1 start to the season...
